Oddity and Fossil Boxes: Make your own curiosity displays

• by Tom

Join us on April 16th! Seafoam Palace presents a workshop for fossil hunters, botany lovers and collectors of rocks and trinkets. Whether found on your last expedition to Mazaghan or an archaeological dig in your own backyard, your souvenirs and prehistoric evidence can easily be displayed with supplies found around your house. In this two-hour class, you will learn how to arrange, label and create a box for your collection with glass, cardboard, fabric, tape and glue.

Bring a few rocks and minerals, petrified wood, calcite fossils, bones, feathers or any other small items you’d like to display – we’ll supply the box materials and will have some extra curiosities on hand. Use your imagination to label your treasures or come prepared with scientific names that we can type on vintage paper for a historic look. After this class you will walk away with your own box and the skill to make more at home.

Our workshop is taught by artist Kim Couchot and hosted by the lovely Coffee and (___) in Jefferson Chalmers, with snacks and drinks available for purchase. Please pre-register since space is limited.

Suggested donation $10-20. Tickets of all prices available.

When: Saturday, April 16, 2016 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM

Where: Seafoam Palace @ Coffee and (___) – 14409 East Jefferson Avenue, Detroit, MI 48215
